Google Chrome is an advanced web browser that was launched by Google. The design of Google Chrome is based on the WebKit layout engine and application framework. It was first released as a beta version for Microsoft Windows on September 2, 2008. On December 11, 2008, the public stable version of Google Chrome was released.

Google managed to be the first to implement and release to the public various innovative features, announced by various browser developers worldwide. The Google Chrome as per reports of various analysts featured to be the highest in application performance and processing speeds. The Google Chrome browser, as of date, also stands to be one of the most secure browsers available, with minimum vulnerabilities. The most interesting part of the Chrome browser, has been the ‘Private’ feature which did not allow cookies or history to be stored by the browser.

After a series of versions, since its introduction in September 2008, Google has introduced Google Chrome 10, with various new features and security measures incorporated. Existing users of Google Chrome automatically get updated to the new version as and when Google Chrome is accessed after the launch of the new version. Google Chrome is actually one of the most stable browsers in the arena today.

The password management feature to the browser’s data, the all new Pass Phrase based encryption using a cryptographic key, generated from your own Google account password or a special Pass Phrase of your choice or generation of an original new password, using typical Apps like Last Pass, make the Google Chrome data encryption and syncing really unique. Google Chrome 10 also runs on highly improved code. The JavaScript speed has been increased phenomenally. The revamped Crankshaft JavaScript engine when released in December was supposed to be about 50 percent faster. As of now, with the Google Chrome 10 implementation, Google claims a 66 percent faster engine. Google’s Crankshaft uses adaptive compilation, identifying important code and optimizing that code as needed. Crankshaft includes four basic components: in addition to a base compiler, there is a runtime profile that identifies hot code, and an optimizing compiler that recompiles the hot code to offer such optimizations as loop-invariant code motion, linear-scan register allocation, and in-lining. Google provides de-optimization support that identifies cases where the optimizing compiler has promised, well, too much optimization. In this case, the engine falls back on the base compiler. Google Chrome also has an innovative feature called SandBox, a contained environment or a browser SandBox, preventing your computer getting infected from malware and other security threats.
